Tonight was the seventh edition of the Philly Geek Awards and it was good times.

Fourteen awards were doled out to the best Philly has to offer at the intersection of creativity and social good. We’re talking impact orgs, scientists, activist groups, video game creators, educators and more. (Speaking of more, here’s the full list of nominees.)

The black-tie ceremony, held this year at String Theory Schools, is just wrapping up. Head over to Generocity to see who won.
